There is also a coastal flood watch in effect from 12 a.m. to 5 a.m. Tuesday.“Heaviest snow and strongest winds will occer overnight Monday into Tuesday,” meteorologists from the agency’s Upton office said in a statement, which added that the storm could be crippling, historic and life threatening. “Secondary and tertiary roads may become impassable. Strong winds may down power lines and tree limbs.”The same storm is expected to impact the Mid-West before blanketing parts of New England. It may be the biggest storm to hit the region since a blizzard dumped a record-breaking nearly three feet of snow on parts of LI two years ago.The blizzard warning means the heavy snowfall is likely to combine with sustained winds of 25 to 35 mph may reduce visibility to a quarter of a mile or less at times. The storm is likely to cancel flights, make driving dangerous and could impact Long Island Rail Road service.When the storm is expected to hit Monday afternoon, temperatures are forecast to be in the 20s with wind chill values in the teens. Those temps are predicted to hold through Tuesday, when it may drop down into the teens after sundown.Once the storm passes, Wednesday is forecast to be sunny before a 30-percent chance of snow returns Thursday night. The weekend forecast includes sunny skies in the 30s for Friday and Saturday.

“Players make plays, and players win games,” is a favorite motto of Wisconsin football head coach Gary Andersen.But Andersen said Monday at his weekly press conference his players were not given that opportunity Saturday night against Arizona State after officials let time expire without allowing the UW offense the opportunity to run a final play.Redshirt sophomore quarterback Joel Stave ran off the right hash mark to the center of the field with 18 seconds left, took a knee and placed the ball down, attempting to set up a game-winning field goal. The officials subsequently did not let the Badgers spike the ball to stop the clock and did not penalize an ASU defensive linemen for laying on the ball, resulting in a 32-30 loss for UW.“I am proud of the way our kids played at Arizona State, it was a very competitive football game,” Andersen said.“All we’re looking for is accountability in this situation and an opportunity to let the kids finish the games, which has been said many times before, and let them be the deciding factor.”Andersen said he would coach exactly the same way if they found themselves in a similar situation again. He also said a similar scenario is practiced throughout spring football and training camp.“First of all, let’s make it real clear, he did take a knee,” Andersen affirmed. “By rule he does not have to take a knee…The idea of putting the ball on the ground is to give the officials the opportunity to get the ball spotted quicker and cleaner.”PAC-12 Commissioner Larry Scott released a brief statement Monday morning describing in detail what occurred in the final 18 seconds during Saturday night’s contest. The report concluded, “We’ve determined the officials fell short of the high standard in which Pac-12 games should be managed.”Andersen was asked whether or not the statement was sufficient, to which he replied “To me personally, no.”“It doesn’t change the outcome, obviously” he said. “But it’s accountability, which at the end of the day is what we ask for.”Andersen said he is moving forward from the game and the situation is one which the players must understand and learn from. He was also very pleased with how the players handled themselves.“The way they carried themselves after the game was good, especially through the upperclassmen,” Andersen said.Regarding the game before the final few seconds, he said he was impressed with the performance of the special teams, an area that was a key concern of Wisconsin’s entering the game.“On special teams we won the game,” Andersen said. “We made some huge plays.”Anderson was especially pleased with the touchdown the Badgers’ special teams scored in the second quarter after ASU botched the snap on a punt. He praised senior nose tackle Beau Allen, who recovered the bad snap in the end zone for a touchdown.“That’s a big time game out of Beau Allen,” Andersen hailed. “He was active. He was physical. He played a bunch of reps. He appeared to be in very good shape.“If he plays like that, he’s going to have an opportunity to move on and play at the next level.”Looking ahead to the Big TenAndersen and his squad look forward to opening the Big Ten regular season with Purdue as the first conference foe coming to Madison this Saturday. The Boilermakers and first-year head coach Darrell Hazel are coming off a tough 31-24 loss to Notre Dame this past Saturday and look to display their new pro-style offense.“There’s a lot of moving pieces to the pro-style offense,” Andersen said. “I like both running backs … number one [Akeem Hunt] and number 20 [Dalyn Dawkins].”
